If there isn't enough room for the trash (avi's can be quite large) it
is deleted permanently.
Thanks for replying. Its not the size of the trash thats the problem, i never keep anything in it, i always permanently delete everything as soon as i put it in. The avis i put also dont reach the maximum limit, therefore they should all still be in there.
